The heart of Virginia Beach—a stretch of the Atlantic shore from Cape Henry south to Rudee Inlet—has been a popular summertime destination for decades. With 6 miles of public beach, high-rises, amusements, and a busy 40-block boardwalk, Virginia's most populated city is now a place for communing with nature. The boardwalk and Atlantic Avenue have an oceanfront park; an old-fashioned fishing pier (admission fee) with shops, a restaurant, and a bar; and a 3-mile bike trail. The farther north you go, the more beach you find in proportion to bars, T-shirt parlors, and video arcades. Most activities and events in town are oriented to families.
